My artwork takes a critical view on the relation between individual and society. In my work, I question the capacity of the single individual to make a change in the society. Using mediums as audio, video and interaction, I have created installations that makes the spectator question his place in society starting from the artistic piece and space itself, to go beyond the art world.In the creation of each project I use the less materials as possible to concentrate the idea on minimal objects, films and sounds, always making a relation with the space and time.
